  • Organized visit through the internet page of mine and everything went perfect. The service was personalized. I went in micro to Uspallata and hence shared a car with a girl up to the site (return transfer had already been hired by responsible for mines, we pay $300 each). The experience of abseiling in the mine was spectacular. Not is it lost. We were only two with a guide. No contract with Agency. Fix directly with Alicia on the page of the Paramillos mines. It best is go for it tomorrow since by the afternoon can go them tours from the city of Mendoza. Them van after lunch. Take shelter even in summer.

  • To get to the mine through mountain trails in 4x4s, the tour of the abandoned tunnels, crossing the heart of hard mountain about 40 minutes in the family version of the excursion (there is another option which includes rappelling into the tunnels and is older than 14 years), 300 metres of tunnels through and if the headlights are switched off the darkness is absolute , not a drop of light arrives at that depth, tunnels are high, people of any age can visit them, they just have to dare, it is not to be missed. Then visit the Jesuit ruins surrounding the mine, surrounded by a landscape of great beauty. Important, bring some coat comfortable, inside the mine the temperature low of them 10 degrees although outside is full summer

  • A place that reminds us of adventure films. Located in one of the highest points of the Mendoza cordillera, is just one of the attractions that this road offers to the visitor. Travel from Uspallata until Villavicencio by them mythical snails is find is with landscapes of stunning beauty and the watching of a fauna that only tend to see in documentary
